Participating Galleries



Apparitions evokes the liminal interval where transient light becomes a momentary image, appearing in a space and perhaps in one’s imagination. Capturing this fluctuating light (where my bedroom operated like a giant camera obscura) the work conjures the ephemeral and posits a space for projections - real and possible, fleeting yet palpable.
